Street Feast

Street Feast returns to Kingsland Road in 2015 for a summer-long stretch of night markets. The tempting line-up of street food favourites includes flavour-packed Korean burritos from Kimchinary, delicate Taiwanese buns from Bao London, crisp fried chicken from Spit and Roast and juicy burgers from Mother Flipper, among many others. The Gin Store is back with its extensive spirit selection, while a new drinking opportunity comes in the form of a Tequila Treehouse. This is a food market that knows how to party.

Summer Tales

Critics' choice

One thing that helped London make it through the last few arduous winters was Night Tales, a fantastic pop-up party full of creative cocktails, street food, DJs spinning dancefloor-filling tunes and general good vibes. Luckily, you don't have to wait until winter to indulge in the fun once again, as the NT crew are back with an ace summer-themed pop-up for 15 whole weekends – welcome news indeed. As it's summer, there's a jungle theme in play, plush hammocks, rope swings and a 20m terrace to soak up the sun.

Olly's Turkish Pop-up Restaurant

Olly Temur's family are from the Black Sea Region, and he's inviting us all to get a taste of traditional Turkish hospitality at this supperclub in Lewisham. Communal tables and friendly faces will make you feel as if you've dropped in for a big family meal, and the dishes on offer prove that there's a lot more to a Turkish menu than greasy kebabs.

The Nomad

Nomad reaches the places that no other open-air cinema does, with pop-ups in all sorts of kooky London nooks and crannies. Not only do its screenings have the coolest locations – from creepy Bromptom Cemetery to gorgeous Hyde Park Lido – they have the best festival atmosphere of any outdoor cinema. And as the little sister of the Lexi Cinema, all profits go to charity. The 2015 programme is being announced soon.

The Car Man

Critics' choice

Dance-theatre choreographer superstar Matthew Bourne brings back his critically acclaimed 'The Car Man' to London for the first time in ages. Based loosely on Bizet's opera 'Carmen' (see what he did there?), 'The Car Man' is set in a garage-diner in '60s America, where small town passions are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger. Bourne's shows - all dances by New Adventures - are usually frolicking, brightly coloured spectacles which popularise old classic for the modern generation.
